By Staff | Sep 16, 2010

Examples of programs supported in 2010 include the Maui Matsuri, Lahaina Plantation Days (pictured) and Maui Ukulele Festival, as well as ongoing activities such as Wailuku First Fridays, Theater on the Isle and Maui Nui Botanical Garden’s Ethnobotanical Tour and Culture Program.

WAILUKU — The County of Maui, in partnership with the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA), is soliciting proposals for tourism product enrichment programs for 2011 within Maui County under the HTA’s County Product Enrichment Program (CPEP).

The intent of the program is to diversify and enrich Hawaii’s tourism product by developing new and enhancing existing community-based events, experiences and projects related to the niches of agriculture, culture, education, nature, health and wellness, and technology.

Application packets are available at the county Office of Economic Development in Wailuku at One Main Plaza, Suite 305, or online at www.mauicounty.gov/oed.

Proposals are due by 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 11 at the Office of Economic Development.
